Last week the children arrived in the classroom to find an old letter from Julius Caesar. He had lost some items and wanted year 3’s help to find them. We had to be treasure hunters and follow clues to find the lost treasure. The clues took us all over school until we eventually found something buried in the ground. We had to dig it out very carefully.
Once we dug out our object we had to be Archeologists and use brushes to clean off the dirt and magnifying glasses to look at the markings on the object. We tried to piece the item together which was quite difficult but we soon realised we had found a piece of pottery!
In the afternoon we used our ideas, imaginations and Roman knowledge to make our own pottery from clay! This was great fun and the pots looked brilliant!
What do you think of our pots?
